Increased energy efficiencies and new revenue streams

The food and beverage industry faces constant change. Growing market demands, supply chain challenges and increased energy, labour and material costs all contribute to an increasing need to find efficiencies and strategies that allow businesses to remain profitable and competitive. In addition, consumers expect sustainability commitments from brands and products, adding additional complexity and cost to food and beverage production. 

As an industry that typically relies on energy-intensive assets, many F&B businesses are taking the opportunity to move from being energy consumers, into energy suppliers, and benefitting through Demand Response revenue streams and improved sustainability results.

Typical industry production and storage assets – compressors, refrigeration, heating – are ideal energy sources to supply energy back to the grid via Demand Response services. By becoming active participants in the energy market, food and beverage organisations are enabling more renewable energy to be consumed across the grid, all while benefiting from a new revenue stream for the business.

Participation in Demand Response with our CHP unit was an obvious next step for Keelings.
